$135,000 Lump Sum Settlement for Montgomery County Truck Driver.
A truck driver making a delivery fell off the back of a tractor trailer as a result of a defective handle. The injured worker sustained injuries to his head and elbow, which was surgically repaired. Philadelphia worker’s compensation lawyer Jonathan Koutcher, of Pearson Koutcher, represented the injured worker. Mr. Koutcher successfully litigated a Petition to Review Compensation Benefits to expand the injured worker’s injuries to include post concussion syndrome. After the parties attended a Mediation, the case was able to settle for $135,000, representing more than 5 years of the injured worker’s wage loss benefits.
